On July 24th Megabox released a new trailer for "The King's Letters" featuring testimonials. Director Bong Joon-ho of the recent hit "Parasite" appears in the trailer, offering his positive recommendation for the movie.
In the trailer, Bong Joon-ho says that the film gives a close look to a thrilling and wondrous historical moment. Bong Joon-ho described himself as feeling the incredible lonely genius of King Sejong as he typed out messages to friends after the movie on his phone, which he naturally did using the very same Korean characters which "The King's Letters" depicts the invention of.
Bong Joon-ho also made mention of lead actress Jeon Mi-sun, who died shortly before the film's release. He said that the beautiful story of "The King's Letters" was what she had left us with. Bong Joon-ho also praised the performance of Song Kang-ho, who also appeared in "Parasite", and emphasized that the film's experience was best felt on a big screen, calling out art director Ryoo Seong-hee's work as being particularly impressive.
